Polen Capital is an asset management firm based in Boca Raton, Florida, with offices in Boston and London. The team have kindly donated an amazing amount of £5,000 to Hackney Foodbank and are also donating their time in October 2021 to help out in our warehouse.
From Paul Williams, Head of International Business Development for Polen Capital:
As a company, Polen Capital has always been acutely aware that we live and work within a greater community to which we have a responsibility to give back. We chose Hackney Foodbank because it is an organization where we felt our contributions could make a significant difference within our community. Our plan is not only to provide financial support to Hackney, but to get involved at a deeper level, which is why we will be going into the food bank as a team and donating our time in just a few weeks. We look forward to a long relationship with Hackney and the people it serves.
From all of us at Hackney Foodbank, thank you so much for your generous donation! Your donation of £5,000 will help provide emergency food to approximately 6,500 people in poverty in Hackney. The time given by the team at Polen Capital to help us to pack emergency parcels over the coming weeks will be invaluable to us so we really appreciate the support and are very much looking forward to meeting the team!
